Computing The Date Of The Next Occurring Specific Weekday?

Feb 18, 2014

My spreadsheet opens. Cell A1 determines what today is, formatted as "weekday, day month year" (e.g., "Tuesday, 18 February 2014").

I have another cell in which I typically enter the date for the coming Friday. Instead of updating this field once each week, I'd like to calculate the date for the next coming Friday based off the value in cell A1 (to be concise, if "today" happens to be a Friday, then it would calculate the date of next Friday). (Continuing the example above, the coming Friday would be computed as 2/21/2014. If I open the spreadsheet on 2/21, it would calculate 2/28.)

What formula or step(s) to follow to render this value automatically?

I am trying to calculate the Date of the next occurring 3rd Friday of the month in relation to a Static Date in a cell. So if Static Date in cell is Tuesday of the second week of a month, then I am trying to return the date of the 3rd Friday of that month. If the static date in the cell is the third friday of the month, I just want to return that particular date. And if the static date is after the 3rd Friday of the month, I am trying to return the 3rd friday of the following month. So far here is the formula I am using:

The problem I have is that if the static date is after the third friday of the month, this continues to return the 3rd friday of the month of the static date and does not advance to the third friday of the following month. Looks like I cannot attached a sample spreadsheet but here is a screenshot of the sample sheet:

I have a list of clients that have specific requests waiting to be actioned, with a number of columns relating to client details and the status of the request across the top of the sheet. One of the columns (D) is "Last Contact Date", where I enter in the date that I last followed up with the client or made contact regarding their request. In the next column (E), I want the weekday/workday date 1 month after the Last Contact Date.

I can use "=D2+DAY(30)" to give me the date 30 days later, or "=DATE(YEAR(D2),MONTH(D2)+1,DAY(D2))" to get one month later, however what I want is the nearest WORKDAY after this date.

So, if the date is on a weekend, I need the Monday date instead.

I need to create a formula that states a delivery date when the order date is entered in an adjacent column. Items ordered on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday will be delivered the Friday of the following week, eg. ordered 23rd April 2008, delivered on the 2nd of May 2008. Items ordered on Thursday or Friday will be delivered on a Friday 2 weeks later, eg. ordered on the 24th April, delivered on the 9th of May 2008

I'm trying to do an IF function involving the date. Basically if the current day is a weekday then I want the cell value to be 30. If the current date is a weekend then I want the cell value to be 50. I'm pretty lost on how to write the formula.

I am looking for excel to return a day from a date value, 14/07/07 = Saturday. Need this in VB ?

I have tried the DATE() and TODAY() etc.. Do i need to first tell excel a day by date so it can work it out, or can i do it in code???

The reason is im looking for it in VB to generate a report on a weeks data, which is inputted by a user. I will know the first date will be a range 1, but then need to convert it into a Day name ?

The code is ok until I hit a month with 4weeks in it and days left over. The code puts a week total in place of a Sunday, but as some months end before a Sunday appears the code just builds a Month end total sheet.

What I need in this case is a Week total even if there is no Sunday before it builds the Month end Total.

I hope i'm being clear

Sub NewSheets() Dim Dte As Date, Dy As Date Dim i As Long, j As Long, Dys As Long Dim CountWeek As Boolean Dim Shts As Long...

I used a formula I found on this site to find the last friday in a month. = DATE(" & Str(iYear) & ",1+1,0)+MOD(-WEEKDAY(DATE(" & Str(iYear) & ",1+1,0),2)-2,-7)

Is there an equivelant date function that can be used when coding in vb (not within a cell.) The VBA editor does not recognize this. I believe it is because date is reserved for variables. If anyone can make this line of code work in vb so as I dont have to asign it to a cell in a worksheet you would be my hero.

The D column is a date (formatted ddd d/m/yy) and the F column contains a string variable such as Red, Blue, Black (D2:D310 & H2:H310). I need a formula that can count how many times the word "Red" occurs on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday. I am showing the results in a table in which Q4:Q8 are the weekdays and R3:W3 are the names of the colours to be counted.

I need a function where for a given date will return the date of a specified weekday in the previous week.

Example: If today is Friday Sept. 25th 2009 and I want to find the date of the Wednesday in the previous week I would need something like DATEPREVIOUSWEEK("09/25/2009", vbWednesday)

Based off of the current thread: Display Time Depending On Weekday

I borrowed some of the formula to help rectify my problem, however I need to add certain # of days depending on what day of the week it is. Here is what I have so far.

See attcahed code. I need to add a line to the code so date picked by the user needs to be both weekday and not a day in the past.

e.i today : 20/06/2006

if user pick a date before today or a weekend date pivot table does not update.

Private Sub MonthView1_DateClick(ByVal DateClicked As Date) Application. ScreenUpdating = False If Weekday(MonthView1.Value, vbMonday) < 6 Then With PivotTables("PivotTable1") .PivotFields("DATE").CurrentPage = Format(MonthView1.Value, "dd/mm/yyyy") End With End If Application.ScreenUpdating = True End Sub

I have daily streamflow data for a large number of years. One column is the date and the second column is the streamflow value. I want to compute the maximum value and the 3-day maximum (largest average value for any consecutive 3-day period)for each water year (starts on October 1 and ends on Sept 30). Of course the number of days each year varies by one during leap years.

determining a formula to compute a sales commission.

Here is a sales scenario.

A $25 commission will be paid on sales between $50 to $150. A $50 commission will be paid on sales between $151 to $300 A $75 commission will be paid on sales between $301 to $600

The sales person will enter the sale amount into column B. Column C should compute the total commission for multilple sales.

Example:

Column A Column B Sales Commission $50 $150 (which is the comm. for the combined sales) $175 $360

computing the number of business hours between 2 dates.

Given the following information: - Business Hours: 8am -5pm (8:00-17:00) - Business Days: Mon-Fri - if entry queued falls on a weekend or beyond the business hours, it should count the first hour on the next business hour.

Example: scenario 1 = Starts Sunday, 10am and Ends Monday 9am; count of hours should be 1 scenario 2 = starts on Monday 6pm and ends on Tuesday 10am; count of hours should be 2

Im looking for an Excel macro that will allow me to input any date and time and produce x,y,z co-ordinate results for planetary positions relative to the centre of the universe. I already have a database with ephemeris data but find it difficult to use manually inputting date and time constantly. I need to perform so many calculations that automating this procedure is essential to me but i dont know how.

Using Excel 2003, Column E has a varying and unpredictable number of rows, which only the final 252 rows are of significance. I need to compute the following formulas, here written in English as I can't determine the proper terminology to accomplish this task in Excel:

Final Row with a number in Column E/average (final 252 rows with numbers in column E)+

Final Row with a number in Column E/average (final 126 rows with numbers in column E)+

Final Row with a number in Column E/average (final 63 rows with numbers in column E)

Once again, what makes this not straightforward for me is the column may have wildly varying numbers of rows.

I am trying to set up a spreadsheet that will have a calculator where variables can be modified in order to properly see staffing requirements using the Erlang C formula. I have all of the known variables, but I can't seem to figure out how to calculate the formula to get the numbers I'm expecting.

[URL] is the website I'm using currently, and I'm stuck at the actual Erlang C formula. I'm not very good at math, but here is how I am reading the formula in English (I'm using the given numbers on the site for the variables so I can check my work).

Erlang C = calls per second to the power of agents staffed divided by the factorial of agents staffed. The result is then divided by calls per second to the power of agents staffed divided by the factorial of agents staffed again, that result is added to 1 minus occupancy, that result is multiplied by the summation of 0 to 54 (54 being the result of 55 agents staffed minus 1), which is then multiplied by calls per second to the power of "k" (i haven't yet figured out what k should equal, i assumed zero from the summation) divided by the factorial "k".

The result I get is not even close to what the website shows as the answer for Erlang, which should be .239. Am I making faulty assumptions anywhere? It's entirely possible I'm not computing the formula properly, it's been about 12 years since I've taken a math class, but since I know all the values for the variables (except for "k"), I should be able to write out a simple Excel formula to compute this.

I'm using excel 2007 for analyzing my students grades. I ran two exams and look for a way to compute a final grade score, which should be equal to the grade of the first exam for those students who took just the first exam and should be equal to the second score for those students who took the second exam. (Clarification: for those students who took both terms, their final grade should be equal to their score in the second term).

I'm using Excel 2007 and s/s is 325501 rows deep. It consists of a series of approx 30000 ranges between 4 and 30 rows deep.

What I need to do is locate the next appearance of a name and copy its accompanying value to the present occurrence. Doing this manully is not feasible, given the large size of the s/s and I would like to acquire code.

The names are in column B and the values to be retrieved are in the adjoing cell in column C.

The code should only act when there is a number in column S and retrieved values should be placed in column V.

So if XXX appears in B2 and B345 and C345 contains 932, I need 932 to appear in V2.

So basically I have 9 columns. I want to count the amount of times "D" is used in the rows below them and then find the column name of whatever column one has the most.

For each of my staff I need to count if they worked 15 or more days in the 30 days preceding a statutory holiday. (As a follow on problem... If they have worked 15+ shifts then I'll need to calculate the sum of their hours over the 30 days / 30).

I tried the functions below but they didn't work. (the Name1 column records the number of hours worked that day's shift) The actual count in my test case is 5.

I have an excel file that lists individuals who came into the clinic on a given day. I am interested in figuring out the amount of unique individuals in a given month/overall. As this is a working datasheet, I would like a formula that would automatically update this information for me. Here is an example of the file that I am working with: unique case example.xlsx

Specifically, I want an IF function that could place an 'x' in column E depending on if the name in column C is a unique instance. But if the name appears several times in the list, I would also like this function to place an 'x' in column E next to the last occurring unique instance. For example, the name 'Hanna D' occurs 3 times in the spreadsheet I have attached, but I want the 'x' to be next to the most recent incident, when she was screened, as opposed to when she was not contacted (missed/doc forgot).

I am not sure if you can even define a unique case in the IF function, let alone the last occurring unique case.

I am not interested in conditional formatting (highlighting duplicate cases and then placing an 'x' next to the most recent highlighted case) because my spreadsheet has 300+ individuals and it is very time consuming to manually move the 'x' when the same individual appears at a later time.
